      Just Right

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Paiste Signature Crystal Thin Crash Cymbal:

      Very versatile cymbal that has been able to adapt to my changing styles over the last 3 years. I wouldn't recommend the smaller sizes since it is a thinner cymbal and without care it will crack easily but mine has lasted 3 years of playing and gigging and only broke by something falling on it.

      Beautiful cymbal

      By 

      from Louisville, Ky

      Comments about Paiste Signature Crystal Thin Crash Cymbal:

      Although this cymbal is easily broken, it is probably has the most beautiful sound I've ever heard from a cymbal. This is not a cymbal meant for heavy crashing. It is more of an accent cymbal. I would not recommend this to a drummer who plays nothing but heavy metal, unless you want it merely as an accent. Overall, one of my favorite cymbals. It just requires a little more love than others.

      Weak

      By 

      from Bear, DE

      Comments about Paiste Signature Crystal Thin Crash Cymbal:

      This cymbal has awesome sound, but after ten months of play it has a 4 inch crack in it. It's not worth paying that much money if it breaks in less than a year. Big waste of money.
